    • Prometric currently anticipates re-opening their testing centers by April 15, however this is dependent on COVID-19 circumstances that are changing daily;
    • Prometric is reaching out to all CPA candidates who had CPA Exams scheduled between April 1, 2020 and April 15, 2020 to reschedule, at no cost to the candidate; and
    • CPA candidates will not have to pay rescheduling fees to Prometric during this time.
